Balblair 18 Year Old Reviews
Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)
Nose: Apple pie with raisins: the top is dotted with caramelised filling that's bubbled up while cooking. Marzipan hints become full-on fruit cake with royal icing – old school Christmas cake.
Palate: Soft, rounded and sweet, with spice and darker, singed notes building. Buttery sponge turns dark and fruity as Christmas-cake fruit and spice builds. Raisins and charred oak provide a backdrop for burnt sugar and fruity dark chocolate.
Finish: Charred staves and rich dunnage warehouse earthiness fade to leave cinnamon and raisins.
